7:16 pm
find out if nene is doing this. >> we know it's weakening but it won't be until the summer until we know that it's gone and if it's coming back or if la nina, the opposite pattern is coming back. so we have sometime. we also have sometime so get ready for a weekend warm up. it's chilly now after highs around 50 today. we dropped into the 30s and 0s right now. the good news is, winds have also dropped. but we still have windchills out there. it feels like 30 in roxboro. 39 in raleigh. while it's not 30 and 40 miles per hour wind gusts, it's still a little breezy out there. 5 to 8 miles per hour breezes. that's what we'll have tonight. and winds will be generally calm as we head into the weekend. but the highlight of the weekend will be the warm up. pretty much the exact opposite of what i have to tell you now. so with dry weather again radar shut off at least until next wednesday. skies will be clear other night. and as you can see, we'll drop
7:17 pm
down to 36. we continue to follow during the over night. 27 tomorrow. that's a good excuse to sleep in. i will be taking my own advice tomorrow. big picture, i mean you look below this big h at what's going on. the radar's on and there's nothing going on. there's snow in west virginia and ohio. but most of the country will have good weather this weekend. including us. as high pressure will keep us sunny and dry. but the high pressure will shift around a little this weekend. it's going to move off to the east. that swings our winds out of the south. and that's going to warm us up. just like the north wind the last couple days has really dropped our temperatures, the southerly wind is going to help warm us up. sure it's going to be chilly tomorrow morning but warmer, much warmer by sunday and even more so on monday and tuesday as someone's going to flirt with 70 degrees by tuesday. and a couple clouds monday and tuesday. but otherwise, not a lot going on. the next time we do have something going on will be wednesday, that's when the next
7:18 pm
nothing like what we saw last wednesday. but we will have some scattered showers right now it's at about a 40% chance. so it's the last weekend of february. march starts next tuesday. and the last saturday of the month will start off chilly. temperatures in the upper 20s tomorrow morning. if you're running errands, hitting the grocery store, maybe garage sales, it'll be cold, and saturday will be the cool day, highs in the low 50s. still chilly on sunday morning as you head to church. 55 for lunch time as highs sunday will make it into the 60s. and i like that as the pick day of the weekend because it's going to be a little warmer. from 51 tomorrow to 62 sunday and then 66 on leap day. remember we got an extra day this year. and it comes at the end of february. february 29th monday will be 66. march 1st tuesday will be close to 70. and then we bring the rain back wednesday with slightly cooler
7:19 pm
of rain by thursday and friday. >> that 66 will be nice. >> it will be. all right wes. thank you. we continue to follow breaking news tonight in apex, authorities are on the scene of a shooting on arrowhead drive. wncn's amy cutler joins us on the phone with the breaking details. what can you tell us? >> i just spoke with the wake county sheriff. he tells us they were called to 4629 arrowhead drive around 6:30 for shots fired. they tell under the circumstances when they arrive -- they tell us when they arrived they found a woman with a gunshot wound. they tell us the injuries are not life-threatening injuries. they believe it started with an altercation in the front yard, that three vehicles may have been involved. it's unclear how it started, why it started. right now i can tell you i'm seeing deputies canvas the area. they're trying to talk to neighbors. trying to gather some more information. at this point, they say it's unclear if the victim in this
7:20 pm
altercation or if she was just in the neighboring yard and was caught, you know, caught up in this. we're going to continue to follow it closely and have much more coming up at 11:00. sharon? >> all right amy, thank you. as amy continues to gather information.
